2017 GBM Open Water Swimming

Open water 2017 is here! A cold month of May meant a slow start to ocean open water training, but a few hardy swimmers took the plunge in early June. GBM has a large group who train and compete in open water. If you would like to train open water with us, take a look on the GBM Facebook page and the Seacoast Early AM Open Water Swim FB page for more information.

LAND SHARK, June 10
First race of the year: 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 mile swims at Lake Gardner in Amesbury MA. GBM had a great showing with Guy Davis winning the 2 mile, and Kirsten Read the first overall woman (and second person overall). Well run race, an easy drive for most of us. GBM was also well represented in the Age Group placings - see full Results here. And a nice write-up on the NELMSC web page here.

MASHPEE SUPER SWIM, June 17
The Mashpee Super Swim has been an annual pilgrimage of sorts for GBM's over the years. Its a bit of a drive - with no traffic the morning of the event its 2.25 hours or so from the Seacoast. The race is held at John's Pond - which is one of the nicest fresh water venues around: crystal clear water, no vegetation to swim through, a sandy beach - and on the Cape as well. This year only Guy and Ed represented GBM, at least in part due to the overcast conditions and cool temperature for this time of year. Both Guy and Ed competed in the wetsuit division of the 3 mile race, with Guy finishing first (3rd overall) and Ed second (eighth overall). Results here.

Eton Swim (6/24) and Great London Swim (7/1)
Guy Davis swam two 10K races in England - the Eton Swim (Dorney Lake, Berkshire; June 24) and the Suunto Great London Swim (Newham, London), July 1. Eton was a rectangular course on a rowing lake which made navigation easy, Results here. Great London Swim event page here. Guy represented GBM very impressively, finishing second place overall in both races.
